will debate josh mandel. to ohio for the final debate between brown and mandel. a former marine, mr. mandel serves as the ohio state treasurer. the debate lasts about an hour, hosted by nbc. important battleground. i am chuck top of nbc news and welcome to the third and final debate between the two men vying to be one of ohio's two voices for ohio for the next six years. senator sherrod brown claims that he has the track record of working for the state's interest. josh mandel would like to put the country on a better course. we have a live audience here and i promised them that i would give them one chance to applaud both of these gentlemen. so, there is your queue. [applause] in exchange, they have said they will keep the applause down. they're able to give their message to you. we have a panel of questioners from around ohio tonight. each candidate will have 90 seconds to respond to a question from our panelists followed by one-and responses from the appointed and then a 30-second rebuttal. mandel won a coin toss early this week and he decided to give his remarks last. >> thank you, nbc.
massachusetts. you have a battle there, scott brown, who historicly won the ted kennedy seat, is up against elizabeth warren. if it wasn't a presidential year i think brown would be favored but i think warn -- warren is probably going to win in the end. that's because of barack obama. states like nevada be a good example gwen: you say nevada? >> you're right. i'm going to get angry letters now. but i think it's a state where the votes are going to track very similar to the lines of the presidential race. gwen: how about montana? >> you're not seeing the opposite. there isn't a lot of romney coattail effect out of these states. a lot are really either competitive or leaning toward obama. it would not shock me if the race is decided by less than 1,000 votes. that's how tight it is. >> or how many people! [laughter] >> and indiana this week, gloria? that wasn't such a tight race and all of a sudden it is again the >> well, of course. because of remarks made my mourdock, who spoke about rape again and it sort of echoed todd achein, -- aikin, even though it was very different because he is oppos
to lose maine, they may lose massachusetts, where scott brown a rerunning and may lose indiana where dick luger was primaried this year and richard murdoch running against donnelly. a good pickup opportunities, nebraska and north dakota, but most of the reigning ones of these races are very, very close, so if you need five or six, what we seem to be looking at here is a replay of 2010 where the numbers are possible, but the republicans to take control are pretty much going to have to run the table and may depend how mitt romney does that night. >> paul: steve, is this a candidate problem in part? scott brown has done, i mean, is a tremendous political talent, very, very good politician for that state, but it looks like he may lose to elizabeth warren just because that state is so liberal? >> yeah, well, let me answer your question, i think it's pretty lousy candidates on the republican side of the aisle and democrats are recruiting pretty good candidates this year, examination, bob carey in nebraska is making that price potentially tight. a red state. your home state of wisconsin tammy ba
, brown is overtaking warren in massachusetts. >> bob: senate race. scott brown. >> kimberly: correct. full screen. read it and weep. 45 to 43%. before elizabeth warren was ahead by five points in september. she has been able to ride the popularity and coat tail of president obama. so it suggests that her favorability is going down and hit by negative attacks, bob. obama not doing as well there. >> bob: i would be surprised if that race would go republican again. maybe so. scott brown did a good job in the special election and done a good job -- >> kimberly: he has 54% favorability rating. >> bob: that state elected republicans to the senate before. >> dana: when we are back here tomorrow we might have to have a debate about ohio. i think a lot of people would think romney's chances are better in ohio than previously described in this block. >> kimberly: i agree. >> bob: okay. we'll do that. the latest on hurricane sandy as it makes landfall next. what happened to one more thing? ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ we're lucky, it's not every day you find a companion as loyal as a subaru. love. it's what
to new york and my colleagues with "the five." ♪ ♪ ♪ >> greg: in a speech, pbs anchor jeffrey brown noted a generation ago people got news from the big three networks. but now all this new fragmentation makes the nation harder to gob. he says, "it's hard not to feel it has some relationship to the divisions around us." translation, i hate you fox news. before there was fnc, the news was slanted so far left you had to lie on the floor to watch it. now that it's over, brown longs for the days he hogged the ball 24/7. more proof that the media embraces diversity, except an opinion. things aren't balanced now. seesaw of the american media political viewpoint has michael moore on one side and da perino on the other. if you take away the excess and leave common sense the seesaw flips like a catapult. bitter fantasies in the teacher lounges are now longer seeing through them. it scares brown. if it wasn't for fragmentation i would never have found your speech, jeff there. goes your point. chi'm sure won't upset you because there is zero chance you're listening to me right now. if there was no fo
state senator nina turner, also with us tonight is judith brown dianis, the co-director of the advancement project. judith, let me ask you first, what is the biggest threat at the polls as you see it right now? >> sure. well, thanks for having me, ed. we have moved from politicians who have tried to manipulate the laws to restrict the vote to now these partisan operatives. you know, in ohio you have husted, the secretary of state, who has been on a relentless effort to restrict the vote, who now admits there has been a glitch in the computer system. 33,000 people who registered have not found themselves on the rolls and cannot get their absentee ballots. it is a glitch. then you have true the vote, organizations that say that they're about election integrity who are preparing to challenge the eligibility of voters at the polls because they say it is about election integrity. and, in fact, if it is about election integrity, they should go to ohio and protest outside of husted's house. that's not what it is about. they're trying to make sure the people who turned
the chp would be helping the chief of police in oakland was happy. >> i personally thank governor brown for his quick response to my requests and my community's plea for help. >> reporter: chp spokeswoman tells me operation impact means 8 to 20 chp officers deployed to prevent crime through traffic enforcement and what she calls patrol presence. she says, the chp will be available to oakland pd whenever they call for help. the good news for oakland, a city in need of financial help as well, the chp officers come here at no cost to the city. terry mcsweeney, abc7 news. >>> muni has released surveillance video hoping someone will recognize a man who viciously beat a van ness station agent. police say the incident happened october 10th, when the man tried to go through with a bike. the agent told him bikes were not allowed on that station. investigators say he ignored the agent jumped over with his bike and you saw the man walk didn't the stairs with that bike and a small suitcase police say the 55-year-old agent followed him and was attacked as he reached the platform. amy hollyfield will
for small businesses and job creators and middle-class families. compare that to washington and shared brown, in washington he has raised taxes 36 times. 36 times during his 20 years in washington. he did not pay his taxes once, he did not pay his taxes three times. he is raising your taxes and is not paying his own. when he was asked why he did not pay his taxes, his answer was that he forgot. maybe the understand that once or twice but three times, you forgot to pay your taxes? you are on the banking committee that deals with mortgages. if you are not paying your own taxes. the reason congress has a 10% approval rating, is because they think they can live by one set of rules. it is so proud to stand up for lower taxes. i helped pass the first property tax rollback in the history of the county. >> this is simply not true, again, but i have come to expect that. he did not answer the question about grover norquist. it is not just talking about middle-class taxes. he has a fast against raising taxes on hedge fund operators, who pays more than mitt romney -- coupes -- who paid significantly low
. in massachusetts, the fourth and final debate between senate candidates elizabeth warren and brown canceled because of sandy and they would like to reschedule but brown told reporters they've already had three debates and his campaign was very, very businey at the e of the campaign. finally democrats are leading in the flo/va races. in ohio, brown holds the lead. it seems like a big lead. maybe bigger than what most people think. tim kaine and george allen, kaine at 50% and allen at 46%. new york mayor michael bloomberg doing something he's done before, more sim l bawlic today, ringing the opening bell on wall street after two days of being off, the financial markets are reopeni reopening. the first time weather had closed the markets for two con second it tiff days since a blizzard back in 1888. all right, becky, what do we expect today in the market? is there going to be pent-up rae action to a whole bunch of other stuff that's not sandy related? sandy is going to have some people trading on that. oh, by the way, isn't there some jobs -- don't we get the ad coming out? >> adp is tomorrow. they pu
. without warnings, people might not take is seriously. all this brown, think of it as a hurricane warning. it's the same thing, just coming from a different office. a pr thing and technical meteorologistist thing. >> i never knew that but i read your note and it seems we should take this seriously. >> absolutely. >> we're glad you're on it. thank you so much. >>> a state of emergency in north carolina at this moment. parts of that state getting slammed by strong winds all last night as hurricane sandy moves in. elizabeth is standing on the surf at the beach and man, oh, man is it getting stronger. >> i know. every hour we say this can't get worse and it seems to do so. we're getting gusts now between 50 and 60 miles an hour, the once that knock you off your heels. with it, cold rain filled with sand. you can see the angry surf behind me. we saw 30 feet of beach yesterday. you can see that's completely gone so now that angry surf coupled by the high tide. the fact that the storm is still 200 miles away, you can see even with that distance, how close that surf is coming to the sand dunes an
. this is something that is unusual when you see the governor jerry brown say we want to raise taxes north to in order to fund education and other services. >> you're a former governor. you know the difficulty in running a state. in california it's particularly difficult because you need two-thirds of the legislature to raise taxes. you have to go to the people to do it. that's what this is. the governor is doing something that a lot of us helped push him to be a little more progressive on and he is. this is what it does. it simply races income taxes on all income above $250,000. that's top 2% of the population. >> eliot: how much does it raise? >> up to 3% for seven years. >> eliot: then it-- >> then it goes back. and it raises sales tax by .25 of a which is one penny on a $4 cheeseburger. >> eliot: i think people need to understand that the impact at the top is progressive impact. it's over 250 or the 500 the wealthier are paying more. but sales tax hurt those at the lower end of the spectrum. people spend a greater amount of their portion much their dollars on those items that will be tacted. here
of losing money. >> jennifer: right. so yesterday former fema director michael brown criticized president obama for responding to sandy too quickly. this is brownie having done a heck of a job. today, abc news political correspondent jonathan karl tweeted this picture of people holding up cans next to a shirt that says -- at the romney relief rally next to a shirt that says obama you're fired. obama, you're fired and here are your cans. it makes us wonder do you think -- maybe not mitt romney but some in his crew might be politicizing this a little bit? >> you know, i think this should be politicized. the whole point of this election is to find out who should run the federal government? and the government has certain responsibilities mox them is the welfare of the american people. so this incident is an absolute -- i think critical case study in what government should be like and that should be discussed in presidential elections. let's compare. let's compare brownie. heck of a job. let's see the job he did with bu
because he doesn't have a personal core? >> right. and so, you know, if they won't buy it in brown, let's make it in blue. that sort of business mindset i think he brings to everything he does. and so, you know, they wanted severely conservative rhetoric during the primary, so he gave it to them. now he thinks they want different rhetoric. >> campaigning in ohio vice president biden pointed out as romney plays up his bipartisanship, he may find his biggest headaches come from his own party. as i was suggesting. let's listen. >> ask them the question, when have you ever seen governor romney take on the establishment of his party? what do you think prospects are that governor romney would attempt to do any of the things he now says he supports? what do you think the chances of him doing that with the republican-controlled congress? what do you think the chances are he's going to tell the people, you know, you're dead wrong. that's basically what he's saying now. >> grover norquist is the no tax guy, made clear that the right wing of the party expects to call the shots. this is brazen, but
that out? >> that's an urban legend. we are working, nart brown and i are working very hard to help the seven or eight splinter unions that didn't end up doing as well as the u.a.w., the iue crferings wa which had contracts essential to the development of the new general motors. but this is not a union-nonunion issue. there were seven or eight different unions that didn't make out as well as other unions had. so there are many salaries folks who said this was the president picking the unions over the salary people. that's not true. there are other unions that didn't make out -- it's a bankruptcy. it was a very, very tough, difficult decision. but i will say to my friends who bring up this issue, first of all, it's not true. and second of all, sherrod brown and i have a bill that will help the delphi salaried and will help the other splinter unions and we cannot get the ear of the republicans in the house of representatives. so i would like to see speaker boehner bring this up in the leam duck session to be able to help the delphi salary folks and those other union members. so it is
